Therefore there is a need for occupational therapists, as healthcare providers, to have a good understanding of LGBT+ people and their experiences, and to be able to provide inclusive practice for all.

Aims of Training:

  • Improve understanding of LGBT+ related terms, and increase confidence in using them correctly.
  • Encourage participants to reflect on their own positionality, in-built biases, raising awareness around the subtle ways their practice may be informed by these.
  • Explore the Good Practice Guidelines and 4 P's Model, offering the opportunity to discuss these in relation to the realities of practice.
